MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Ivan Argüelles's new book of poems is Duo Poemata: Ilion–a Transcription & Altertumswissenschaft. Jack Foley says of it, "…the 'marvelous' of these poems ventures further than even Surrealism. Their vast reach and their vast reading include the Classics and the realm of Pound's Cantos, where the dead and the living mingle. James Joyce's 'nighttown' is here as well…" He has published many previous collections, including Looking for Mary Lou, which won the Poetry Society of America's William Carlos Williams Award in 1989; The Death of Stalin: Selected Early Poems, which won the Before Columbus Foundation's American Book Award in 2010; a number of 'epic', book-length poems like "That" Goddess; and A Day in the Sun, an elegiac collection prompted by the death in 2011 of his twin brother José Argüelles, the renowned New Age writer.
Neeli Cherkovski's new book of poems is The Crow and I. Raymond Foye says of him, "He celebrate[s] a love and learning in language that is exuberant, vivid, and reflective. Neeli lives for poetry. Long may this great imagination thrive." His previous collections include Leaning Against Time, From the Canyon Outward, and Animal. He is also the author of the prose works Whitman's Wild Children, Bukowski: A Life, and Ferlinghetti: A Biography. His honors include a PEN/Oakland Josephine Miles National Award for literary excellence and a 2014 Acker Award for poetry and biography.
